“Since I was 9, all I wanted to be was a professional wrestler. My identity was always just “the wrestler.” It isn’t until now, 10 years into my career, at 28 years old, that I’m learning I am so much more than that. Yes, I am a wrestler but I am also business woman, a wife, a dog mom, a history nerd and a soon to be college graduate. Women don’t just need to be just ONE thing. We need to embrace and be proud of all that we are and what makes us unique in order to continue to spark change for women all over the world.”
"The parallels between being a Firefighter and a Professional Wrestler are endless. Both careers are made up of my chosen family, my brothers and sisters. Both are team sports as much as they require one to perform at a high level on an individual basis. Both careers require you to always be there for your team. To pick up the slack and offer a shoulder to lean on, because that is what family does. Being in both fields has allowed me to embrace both my masculine and feminine qualities. I am so proud to be a Firefighter and an IMPACT Wrestling Knockout. Everyday I am motivated by the incredibly powerful, strong, and tenacious women in my work life that I get to call my family."
"With more opportunities for women than ever before, the Knockouts division of IMPACT Wrestling continues to be one of, if not the #1 place for the best women’s wrestling on TV."
"The Knockouts have always been hard working and the current roster is no exception. We work hard to inspire others and each other, pushing ourselves to always be leveling up. That’s something to be proud of."
"It’s such an honour and privilege to be a part of such an amazing, strong, confident, beautiful, smart group of women. The Knockouts division has always inspired and helped me go after my dreams. I hope that I am able to inspire, educate, and empower the next generation to live their most authentic and best life."
"Women are constantly asking themselves one question: am I enough? Am I good enough? Am I pretty enough? Am I thin enough? Am I strong enough? Am I doing enough?
I just want every woman who is struggling with those constant “am I enoughs” to know - you are. You’re enough. And once you believe that, the sky is the limit. Stop questioning yourself. There is no force equal to a woman who knows her worth and is determined to rise."
"I’ve been blessed to be in this lockerroom full of hungry, talented, beautiful; unique; vibrant women in 3 different decades of being a Knockout and one thing has always remained the same. We all want us all to win. That sisterhood is truly why I believe our division shines so bright and our opportunities seem endless. The faith; diversity; and equality IMPACT has put in its women has changed the standards for us all."
"I’m so proud of our locker room. The Knockouts are working tirelessly to be creative in their pursuit to open eyes industry wide and continuing to inspire the next generation. Our latest photoshoots have been put together with the efforts of the entire Knockout locker room and I couldn’t be prouder of the drive, passion and effort to make it all happen. These shoots are our way to showcase our authentic selves and allows the fans a chance to take a step into the Knockouts world. I hope every fan is ready to see what we have in store..because it’s only going to get better."
"The Knockouts division was always a place that I wanted to be. When I got the opportunity to work with Gail Kim, the face of the division, I was beyond excited. It’s been a dream. To be part of such a strong, talented, supportive women’s division is everything to me. I am honored and proud to be part of the Knockouts history."
"In 2009 at No Surrender, Sarita and I defeated Madison Rayne and Velvet Sky to become the inaugural Knockouts World Tag Team Champions. This win solidified my place in Knockouts history to be the first wrestler in TNA history to win the singles and tag team titles. The Knockouts have always been the most talented, diverse, and loving group of misfits who are one big, happy, dysfunctional sisterhood. As one half of the first-ever Knockouts World Tag Team Champions, I am honored and humbled to have a second chance to breathe fire, air, earth, and water into the already decorated Knockouts tag team division. With my sacred sister, the Tower, the majesty of pain, KiLynn King. Long live The Coven."
"I want every woman out there to know to bet on themselves. The risks I took because of the passion I felt and fought for all paid off. The failures I had only led to my successes. To be able to see what this Knockouts division has grown into and being a part of this special group of women throughout the years in different capacities has truly been an honor. I look forward to seeing what the future holds for this division, one of the cornerstones consistently for IMPACT Wrestling."
